New for 2019: Fully Sealed PMG Designed for Wind Turbines and Hydroelectric Power
Great for Marine Environments!
For Use On Land or Sea
The NEW Missouri Wind and Solar PMG is fully sealed to create a water-resistant motor for wind and hydropower. Truly well thought out with years of R&D behind the production.
Some of the features include:
Larger bearings to withstand wear and abuse
Sealed front bearing with additional labyrinth style seal
Case with a rough, natural finish which means more surface area to speed cooling and improve output performance
Keyed shaft and hub stabilizer that bolts on to the blade hub to prevent slipping and improve safety
Hub stabilizer that channels water away from entering through the front of the housing
Gasket style seal to keep water from seeping into the case
Water resistant design - no marine varnish or painting required
Wind tunnel testing up to 55 MPH
We've had the motor installed at our store in Seymour, Missouri with great results and have even run it through our wind tunnel test at 55 MPH. The fully sealed motor is perfect for marine environments but can be used anywhere a wind turbine can be mounted.
Just like the Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom PMGs, the Sealed PMG contains more copper than typical PMAs on the market. What does that mean? More copper equals more power output! Our custom made skewed stator reduces cogging and allows startup in lower wind speeds.
Why are Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom PMGs Better Than Others On The Market?
Freedom 3 Sealed PMG Specifications:
12 volt at 250 RPM shaft speed (appx 6mph wind, depending on blade set used)
24 volt at 490 RPM (appx 15mph wind)
48 volt at 970 RPM (appx 24mph wind)
Note: You can't charge your batteries until you reach your battery voltage. The faster you spin the PMG, the more amperage will flow. In high wind locations, our 12 volt Sealed PMG makes an excellent 24 volt wind turbine with a high amp capability.
PMA and PMG cases should not be painted or coated - this prevents heat from leaving the motor and reduces efficiency. If you have an open-faced motor like our Freedom single and dual PMGs, you can marine varnish the interior components.
Excluding wind turbine applications, the Freedom 3 sealed PMG should not be run at over 420 watts at 12 volts, 800 watts at 24 volts, 1,500 watts at 48 volts, or 30 amps continuously in a gas or electric belt-driven application without proper cooling fans.
Running the motor continuously without air moving across the case may result in overheating. An MPPT charge controller is ideal in these applications as it greatly reduces the amperage demand from the motor. You will still need to use a cooling fan.
